Social Emotional Learning (SEL) is an incredibly valuable part of the school day to support student's recognition of feelings and character building. This week in particular, we'll be talking about Self-Awareness and Self-Management, two core competencies of CASEL's SEL framework, and how to build these critical skills into virtual learning.
This week's virtual session was focused on social emotional learning. Healthy and Ready to Learn was joined by two NYC Department of Education staff, a Parent Coordinator from one of our Technical Assistance Schools and a Restorative Practices Coordinator from the Office of Safety and Youth Development, to discuss strategies to incorporate SEL during virtual learning.
In partnership with Counseling in Schools, the Healthy and Ready to Learn team hosted a virtual parent workshop focused on how to keep the Social Emotional Learning going at home, how it might help with adjusting to new circumstances, and how to use social emotional learning at home to help everyone get along better at home.
